iOS 11 To Bring Computer Features To iPad

WWDC brought the first official news of the next version of iOS, with Apple starting to turn its tablet away from the simplicity of an over sized phone platform and moving towards something with more computer like features.

iOS 11 will bring building blocks to the party, with enhanced multi tasking features and proper file management. Those amount
to a good start, as so new features for the pencil which make it work more like Samsung's S-Pen.

What Apple hasn't addressed is the iPad's ability to perform as a desktop machine, something which is key to it finding the hallowed ground where it can really be your only computer.

Still, as the old proverb says the longest journey begins with a single step, so Apple is at least on the right path here.
